Shower Steam Interrupts BBC Radio 2, 6Music Friday Morning Shows
February 19, 2007 at 5:40 AM (PT)
BBC RADIO 2 and digital 6MUSIC had to go to backup tapes during morning drive FRIDAY (2/16) for an unusual reason: shower steam from an adjacent gym locker room.
RADIO 2's TERRY WOGAN and 6MUSIC's PHILL JUPITUS evacuated the stations' WESTERN HOUSE studios shortly after 8a when steam from the showers accumulated and set off an alarm in the building. The hosts were off the air for about 15 minutes until the problem was located and the all-clear was given.
